I found that also in all post Soviet specially my land Ukraine that the New ES priced higher than the New GS, which gives the room a lot for the GS, hope this means a true step to axe it

It never left our country Philippines so how can they say it returned to Asia-Pacific?

    I know I saw it, but they should have written it "returned to some Asia-Pacific Markets" because they're generalizing it. Many people doesn't know which countries have right-hand or left-hand drive vehicles.

It was planned to be assembled in Thailand but the project has been shelved after trial. It has to go to the end of the queue for March debut.

    interesting Information... More Lexus models needs to be built overseas - so i guess Thailand would be a good place for such a Project.

I don't know why Lexus didn't sell it sooner...the ES is popular amongst the ASEAN region and its people
